Took a second...

This made my skin feel odd after the first use, but after that it was easy to apply and great on the skin. I think its just a strong product (which you want in retinol) and my skin just needed a second to adjust to something it wasn't used to. Glad I didn't rule out after the first use!

Great Retinol Product

I love the I use this every two days and it's very gentle and doesn't upset my skin. I use it only at night and am mindful to use spf during the day.

Really improved my acneic skin and not much of the side effects even though its my first retinol?? Not sure how, but I love this product!

Very gentle

I like that this product combines retinol with peptides. All you have to do is add a moisturizer on top. I use vitamin c during the day, and retinol in the evenings. I also like the packaging.

Great product!

I have been using PC's retinol booster for awhile now, love how my skin looks for being 49! It blends in easily with my other serums.

Best retinol!

Love this booster! Add it to my serum and have had no irritation. My skin texture has greatly improved. Seeing a little improvement on fine lines and softening of forehead wrinkles. First time using retinol. Love the flexibility of being able to add this when I know I won't have sun exposure (versus using a product where it's included).

Gentle but effective retinol!

I love this retinol. If I use it every day like the bottle says I get irritation, so I use it every 2-3 days. It has made my skin smooth and even and it is brighter. I have some hyperpigmentation that it has lightened up. The smell is a little odd but I don't mind it. It's sort of a vitamin smell. It's a watery serum texture that soaks right into my skin.

Not for me

I purchased this to mix with my serum & provide additional anti-aging. Unfortunately I didn't keep it long enough to see any results. It left my face very red, very oily & didn't layer well under make-up. Love Paula's Choice products, just not this one.

Great gentle retinol

On my 3rd bottle of this booster. I use 1 pump 4 nights a week after cleansing. Other nights I use a chemical exfoliant. Sometimes I apply alone but usually mix with the PC radiance serum. Give about 10 minutes to absorb then proceed with moisturizer. I have had no irritation. This provides slow and steady results which is exactly what I'm looking for. I think if I used this 2x a day or in same routine as exfoliating products as is suggested in directions it could cause irritation. I love the thin light texture and lack of silicones along with all the beneficial ingredients added. Bottle is tiny and would go very fast if used as instructed but lasts me a few months.
